Besides, AWD only helps you get going. It will do shit all for turning and braking in the snow.

Last week they forecast snow for this weekend, and look - no snow.

Its forecast to be +6C, so any snow will melt as son as it hits the pavement.

Regardless its time to get off the summers. At those temps summer rubber turns into hockey pucks.

for all other lowered car people

no point in getting winters if the car is low as hell, and possibly be high centered

Those are still supposed to be hockey pucks, according to lots of Subaru owners on NASIOC.

I'm still searching for used set of 215/45R18 snow tires on Craigslist. Stock wheels 18" FML.

Environment Canada is predicting a strong weather system may potentially blanket the area with 60 centimetres of snow.

FML my parents took the ES300 to calgary ... so now I either use the celica which is slightly lowered or take our c240, which i'm semi-paranoid about driving in the snow (not because it's RWD, but because my dad would freak out if anything happened to it)

seriously the potenza re92s succcck. They are great tires for dry weather but even when the roads are wet(not raining), when I do a launch with traction control off, the tires spin like they're bald.

it's good to see ppl on Revscene going from summer mode to winter mode. Too bad shitty translink doesn't give a crap except for reducing services.



Sooo... when is the city of vancouver going to salt the road? I'm always paranoid when there is salt on the road. Salt -> rust especially when it's too cold to wash cars.
